Fire risk prevention – training for providers

In response to the Coroner’s Court findings into the death of a TAC client, several recommendations were handed down to the TAC for consideration. In response to these recommendations the TAC has worked with the Melbourne Fire Brigade and the Department of Health & Human Services to utilise fire safety training and information for disability service providers.

This training aims to strengthen fire awareness for disability support workers and is a mandatory requirement within the disability provider registration. Please watch the introductory training video for more information. Links to the free training material can be found below.
